When you think of course authoring tools the biggest names come to mind – Articulate, Captive and Lectora. But just because they are well known doesn’t mean that they don’t have faults.
It is time to stand up and shout it from the rooftops – “I’m mad as…” and let some vendors know that the days of treating the customer as secondary, bugs as a way of life and setup fees as the next Fort Knox is over with – now and forever.
The latest LMS directory is here and my top Extended Enterprise Systems rankings for the month of August.
The majority of consumers focus first on features, rather than UI. As such, having the right set of features is important, but I believe having the features that are unique, is what makes a system stand out.
A huge issue facing the industry is a hubris mentality. They believe that their system doesn’t need a new look because their current customers are not asking for it. Yet beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a new breed of customers are not seeing it in many LMSs.
With the new screen recording and video recording solutions for our industry, things are changing. Some features make sense, some don’t. Some products are easy to use, but many are not. The question is why?
Purchasing a LMS is only the first step in the process. Implementing is the 2nd, followed by training and support.
The e-learning world as a whole is turning into faux perception, with the assumption that what we are seeing is actually the case. It isn’t.
Articulate Storyline is a robust, feature rich product that is the first blockbuster this summer. It is a must have in any e-learning developer’s arsenal and a must for anyone who is ready to take courses to the next level.
The data continues to pour in showing that e-learning is achieving better results than any other form of learning, especially instructor led. So why is is that the training community (and even education) as a whole is still ILT driven, especially with blended learning?
